We were bound to hit a few bumps in the road in developing our Python class using the Java manual as an outline. We are at the start of chapter three. There are five chapters in all. At this point the Java manual discusses using methods. Since we have not yet gotten to classes (which aren't formally discussed until chapter 4) we are substituting functions in our Python material at this point. We can discuss methods later when we get to chapter four. Below is the thumbnail of the three column (pseudocode, java, python) screenshot on box.com.
